"monument" on the survival of Mrs. Reppin
In this video podcast, Curatorial Associate Tom Norris discusses "monument" on the survival of Mrs. Reppin, an artwork by American artist Dan Flavin (1933-1996). On display for the first time at the Museum since its acquisition in the late 1960s, "monument" has all of the characteristics that make an artwork by Flavin so recognizable-the materials, the engagement with the exhibition space and the idea of a corner icon. Norris provides an in-depth overview of this dramatic artwork’s history, shedding light on its unique title and why it had never before been on view at the Museum. "monument" on the survival of Mrs. Reppin is on view March 8 through August 19, 2013.
